Typical road trip conversation*:
Me: Look over there, at that old church/house/cemetery/etc.!
Patient Spouse: What? Where?
Me: OK. You have to make a u-turn.
And that’s how I got this shot.
Grenville, New Mexico
*When I’m not the driver. When I am the driver, I get to make ALL THE U-TURNS I WANT!
Well, this was a rare treat – a chance to get inside an old K-Mart store (which I’ve named “dead K-Mart” because that’s the way my mind works). I’d previously peeked through the doors of this place, but being inside was a whole new perspective.
This is the first of four images from this place. Don’t worry, though, it was a sanctioned visit and I didn’t get arrested or anything like that.
The glass in the door of this place was gone and someone had nailed up a piece of wood over the hole. Well, nearly over the hole: there was a bit of a gap at the bottom. A camera-sized gap. If you know what I’m getting at here.
(I thought the photo was going to be about those left-over cars, but now I am starting to think it’s really about that metal ceiling, hanging in tatters.)
